The Lord Be With You Today!

Isa 43:1a
But now, this is what the Lord says—
(The Lord identifies Himself using His personal name of Jehovah God,
a Name denoting His Own identity, His self-existent and permanent nature,
the Great I AM, and His personal commitment to us
through His Own blood covenant with us,
a covenant in which He chooses to be our God and to adopt us as His Own.
To reassure His people that He Himself
had allowed them to be overcome and taken into captivity
so they would finally be desperate enough to repent and turn back to Him,
the Lord speaks to His beloved people to reassure them.
He also speaks to us today to reassure us
that what has come into our lives today is for the purpose
of focusing our attention on Him and to bring Him glory.)
He who created you, Jacob,
(Put your name here as the one whom the Lord Himself
has created out of His Own good pleasure.)
He who formed you, Israel:
(Put your name here as the one whom the Lord Himself
has formed out of His Own good pleasure.
Because He has made us, because He has given us life,
we need to listen to this One Who speaks,
to this One Who is mightier than we,
to this One Who speaks out of His great love and commitment to us.)

May the Lord richly bless you this day!

In Christ’s love,
